ANNUAL AUSSIE AFFAIR: At the second annual Australians in New York Fashion Foundation fete held at the Crosby Street Hotel on Tuesday evening, Oz land transplants and an adoring coterie of non-Aussies nibbled on Lamingtons (the coconut-dusted lemon sponge cake cafe staple from Down Under) while nursing ginger-spiked Melbourne Sling cocktails. “Australians are so uncouth. This is what I’m talking about,” Sarah Wynter exclaimed as a friend made a beeline toward her across a crowded nook of the candlelit bar, nearly toppling over fellow partygoers along the way. “We get a bit silly when we go to these Aussie events,” said Aussie actress Melissa George. “The accent comes out really strong.”

While the scads of native Australians in attendance reunited, others including Fabiola Beracasa, Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli marveled at the lively spectacle. “They come and share the party with everybody,” Zani Gugelmann said of the Aussie way of mingling. “There aren’t any cliques when Australians show up somewhere.”
